    Is this the case or is there a way to change it?

    I bought a keyboard doc for a reason...Why would Apple sell Keynote so it cannot function vertically....

    Any thoughts? Am I wrong guys?

    Your right, and pages operates only in portrait. I think that is on purpose because of the expected use cases.

    That is how they intend you to use it.
    Send them a complaint.

    Why would you want to view a presentation in portrait? I'm sure powerpoint is the same for Windows PC's.

    I was going to buy Pages and Keynote, but I heard the compatibility with Windows files is terrible. Anyone know of any alternatives?

    Pages works in both portrait and landscape modes. And I'm pretty sure PowerPoint works when your monitor is in either mode.

    Its not just about viewing presentations, its about note-taking and editing too...

    And yes Powerpoint with Windows PC is in "portrait" mode or landscape mode...

    By the way, I know this is an old post, but I was incorrect (or they changed it): Pages DOES work in landscape.
